Customer Question

Good morning
I have a Jaguar X type estate 3 L 2004. I have noticed that I have quite a lot of negative camber on the rear wheels is this okay or do I have a problem

that doesn't sound right I'm afraid as the setting dimension should be about 0.7 degrees of negative camber total for the rear

whats most likely is the rear springs have sagged so the rear of the car is sitting lower than it should and as a consequence the arc of the suspension means the rear camber is greater than it should be

I'd next check that the ride height is correct as you shoudl have aleast a 50mm gap bewteen the top of the tyre and the wheelarch with the car unladen and on level ground
